So after moving house twice and all our mold problems of last year, which followed us to our lovely new (dry) apartment and ruined half our stuff...
we got up yesterday morning to start our much needed easter holiday with a few bites of hotcross bun, and looked overto see water spreading across a third of the living room :( After 4 hours of mopping up water and wringing out towels, calling plumbers and a much needed cream egg and pringles delivery (thanks Robyn!), we got it somewhat dry.
Now we start the quest to see if the carpet can be ripped up to be dried properly so that the mold issues of last year don't set in :(
After favouriting far too many lace shawls on Ravlery and getting this purpley-blue lace yarn for Christmas, I knew I had to have a go ^_^ If you look closely you can see the lifelines I've been adding in every second row
I've worked my way up to completing around 4 rows on my 50min commute, with a train change or two in the middle (at the start it was taking me 50min for 2 rows while I got used to the pattern :S)
Eep look what arrived in the letterbox today from lylianmae!
It's sooo pretty and she has some rather timey whimey fleece for you Who fans too :)
Before I can spin this exciting batt, I need to finish what is currently on my wheel - which is this completely gorgeous Merino Bamboo blend from extremespinning
I find it difficult that you need to decide whether to ply your handspun before you start spinning (so that you spin your singles in the correct direction). I have been doing some swatching to try and help: (knit + crochet)
